Accurate Minatures Corvette GrandSport

23 January 2011 - 12:28 PM

I Bought this as an incomplete kit for $4.00 at the last show we had in Albany, Oregon. It is missing the frame, suspension, engine and the photetch parts. I decide to build it into a prostreet car. So far i have opened the doors and trunk, made the door jamb for one side and fill in a few things. I still have to fab a frame and suspension, and have plans on using the Dobbertons J2000 prostreet for the engine, once i find one. Here are pics of the progress so far..........

American LeFrance Car Hauler

10 August 2010 - 08:15 PM

A friend at work bought a box of 3 partial American Lefrance firetruck kits mixed together in a box at a yard sale for $2.00. He didn't do anything with it and gave it to me. It contained parts from two ladder trucks and one pumper truck. The first time I saw one of these on the shelf i wanted to build one into a car hauler, but they are a little expensive so it never happened till now.
I used pieces from all three cabs to lengthen and raise the cab to make a sleeper area out of it. I still have to build the interior, going to make a bed, refrigerator and some cabinets. The engine will get moved from under the cab to under the front of the bed. The framefrom the ladder truck will work with a few modifications. The bed right now is thin cardboard so i can decide how to start cutting plastic.
Thanks for looking,
Dave
